    Haven't posted here in a while but just got these two today and just wanted to share.
    Sorry for the watermark but the last few times I posted pics of watches untagged, I see them used on ebay the next day.

    If I were in the market for a uniwatch (perish the thought), this might be the one:

    Working with the ToG today.
    I probably get the most wear out of this watch over all the rest.

    Great looking watch, I've always really liked the bits of red on this watch.

    Hey Moo I have a suggestion for you that I'm sure will be universally panned here as it is neither a Rolex or an Omega. If you find yourself married to the one watch plan allow me to suggest (and I'm getting ready to start ducking all the rotten fruit about to be tossed my way) a 42MM Panerai. Something like the Pam 337. As it's the Radiomir case it doesn't scream "Panerai," I think 42MM would be a perfect size for your wrist (not to big not to small), and with the ease of strap change and abundance of straps available you could dress it up or down for any occasion. You can really change the feel of the watch by choosing a carbon fiber vs an ammo vs gator vs calf, etc. Basically you get multiple options for the price of one watch + straps.

    That being said, I agree you should take your time because, let's be honest, watch shopping is lots of fun.

    Is the 337 still available new? It doesn't appear to be on the Panerai website. After a Hodinkee review, I really was turned on to that watch, but getting it doesn't seem to be that easy.

    That is actually one of the main things that drew me to this watch.

    Supposedly not a hoax either as folks who worked for that Norway AD confirmed that the SD4000s they recently received as stock had that bezel insert...

    Makes the watch less desirable for me personally and I had it on my shortlist. :fu:

    Then again, these might end up being part of a small mistake batch and end up selling for $23940823498203498234 down the line.

    I am rather curious. I really doubt they would switch bezels though? If they did, I need to buy one... STAT.

    183 is sweet. I've have a 210 for many years and still love it.

    I agree. While I recently sold my Luminor because I nearly never wore it - mostly due to it feeling too large at 44mm - I still appreciate the design and have come to like the Radiomirs even more. I definitely prefer the simple, historic models like the 183 and 210. At 45mm they would be too large for me, but I think they might be a good fit for you. The 42mm Radiomirs like the 337 are really appealing to me (would like it even better as a pure base model, but AFAIK they don't make that).
